Sushi Garden Relocates
Sue and Chun Kim have moved their Sushi Garden restaurant from Alvernon Way and Broadway Boulevard to the former Elle spot in Broadway Village, on the corner of Country Club Road and Broadway Boulevard. The owners say that the new location has the largest sushi bar in town; lounge and patio areas; and all of the affordable lunch, all-you-can-eat and happy-hour specials that were available at the original spot. Sue and Chun Kim own another Sushi Garden location at the Foothills Mall.
